    supertones, debadged and window visors

    just did a few minor mods this weekend. As the title says, i put the supertones in, debadged the rear all but the "WRX" emblems and put on the window visors. I was also in the process of painting the "WRX" on the fenders. Popped the little fender peice off, taped it, cut it out with an exacto knife, did 5 coats of paint, 3 coats of clear, went to take the tape off and the damn paint came with it!! it was like 3 in the morning when i started it and i was being tired/lazy....i never sanded it!! oh well, it'll be a quick mod for the future... anyways, here's some recent pics....











    and, here's one of my sweet paint job....



    and i also had a dog jump up on my fender...



    thats all, thanks for looking.

    wasn't my dog. i was at a friends house and they were dog-sitting for a friend. the thing was a hyper ass puggle, when the owner came to pick it up, she walked it outside and it jumped up on my car.

    as for the window visors, they were an ebay special 08 - 11 Subaru Impreza Wind deflectors Vent Visors - eBay (item 230554161736 end time Mar-23-11 00:47:31 PDT)) seller is matz-n-stuff if that link doesnt work.

    Car looks good, man. Hopefully your visors don't rip off @ 75 on I-88 like the ones I had on my old Altima did...

    looks good mang! look into the redouts for the tails makes a huge difference on black rexes. i have cats and they sleep on my rex in the garage but luckly i dont see any scratches from it just dusty paw prints all over the hood. Still pisses me off though! if i catch em in the act ill squirt them with the water gun. They have sharp claws and after seeing that pic of yours i am concerned now.

    Definitely want to do something with the tails. All in due time.

    As for the car wash, funnily enough, I build carwashes in eastern NY and all of new England for a living. naturally I get free washes all the time. You'd be better off in touch free washes rather than friction for obvious reasons but it's hard to say. if the surface wasn't cleaned properly prior to install they may fly off but the 3m tape is some strong stuff. Im not worried about it in the least.

    Looks good, but I'm not a fan of window visors either. They scream 40-50 something year old white trash to me. I always love how the supertones look behind a grille though, and badges are lame. Why not take off the other ones too for a really clean look?

    Just curious, why did you put them on there? I know what they're supposed to do in terms of functionality, but why personally did you put them on?

    yeah, the supertones apparently have a bracket you can buy separately that space them out further. never seen one till after i bought/installed the horns. so i just used what was available behind the grill.

    that hole on the right is threaded so it worked fine, the one where my finger is is just a hole (no threads). i used the nut/bolt from the horn that was mounted behind where a passenger side fog would be and it worked great.

    as for the visors, they were/are cheap ($40). and why.......good question. i dont have an answer. ive had them on every car ive owned so it was almost habit really.

    I didn't use the bracket that came with the Hellas,instead I went to Home Depot,got longer brackets(I think it was like $3) & painted it black,so that the horns stick out a bit more.I screwed in one bolt into the existing hole & for the other I used a bolt & nut.
